Re: Rear End Collision After Changing Lanes
I'm trying to figure out how you pulled over in front of a person that was obviously going faster than you that was in your blind spot. Most people set their mirrors so their blind spot covers an area that is actually not behind their car but beside them.
and then to be able to get completely in the lane... not understanding how it could happen as you describe.
and if your turn signal turned off automatically, it suggests you turned at a fairly sharp angle. It requires the steering wheel to be turned a certain amount before the self cancelling action would be effective. Generally at 65-75 mph, you aren't going to turn your wheel that much. If you did turn that abruptly, you may have been the cause of the accident.
because of all of those problems with your explanation, I have no idea who is in the wrong. Generally the person in the rear is presumed to be at fault but given your explanation, I haven't a clue.
